president biden and mitt romney will be campaigning hard down here all day long in florida. the storm has forced the president to cancel several campaign events. but it has also given him a chance to show some presidential leadership. >> my message to the federal government. no bureaucracy. no red tape. get resources where they're needed. >> reporter: and later today, he'll get a firsthand look at the damage on the new jersey shore, with none other than the state's republican governor, chris christie. christie is a die-hard romney supporter. but he's had nothing but praise for the president's handling of the storm, which he says is all that really counts right now. >> i don't give a damn about election day. it doesn't matter a lick to me at the moment. i've got much bigger fish to fry than that. so do the people of the state of new jersey. >> reporter: romney, after cancelling eight events in five states, turned a planned rally in ohio into a makeshift bid to aid relief efforts. >> a lot of people will be looking for goods, even though we've gathered these things, as you know. i know that
as we speak, and there's a lot of attention here. vice president biden was here in wisconsin last week. paul ryan was here yesterday. mitt romney is going to be here tomorrow. wisconsin getting an outsized amount of attention, you could say. >> another place getting a lot of attention, virginia. that is where mitt romney earlier today gave a speech. he is going to be doing at least three different cities and towns in that state. i want you to hear this, briana. this is what his message earlier this morning. >> now, the president's proposal in a setting like this is to continue on the same road. he has a campaign slogan that was forward. i saw the signs out front. forward. i think forewarned is a better word. >> briana, yol, mitt romney has taken the gloves off. he is now going back on attack mode. do we expect that is going to play out the next five days on both sides? >> reporter: yeah. i think you already saw that here. you heard president obama saying that the romney campaign is betting on cynisism, that people will want to -- i think you're almost hearing in a way these mirror imag
it with even a little bit with joe biden last night, showing up on popular tv. they've been trying to drive out that youth vote. they've been on college campuses. their turnout machines always involve college campuses, texting, social network. looking at those figures, we're seeing that unemployment among 20 to 24-year-olds actually went up this month from last month. so it is a grim picture for that particular demographic, which is the president's demographic. so the question is, can he still drive them out on, you know, the promises of the future? i think african-american votes, woef heard a lot about how they're not enthusiastic. everyone i've talked to said they are just not seeing that in early voting. they say that the numbers are up in terms of african-americans or at least even to what it was last time around. so it isn't so much african-americans, i think, who are still there in large numbers and large percentages, but the youth vote is quite problematic for the president. >> who can fix it? and who thinks -- which candidate can fix it? number one issue is jobs. if that's the issue be
that pleased both with what president obama said and vice president biden said about not being informed and not being in the loop or whatever it was during the vice-presidential debate. and you think what we're seeing in washington right now is this immense turf battle behind the scenes starting to spill over into plain view and it is only because of that speckel that a lot of mainstream media is finally paying attention. jon: why is this story not getting more coverage in the mainstream media? >> you know, i hate to be so reductionist about these kind of things, boils down to the fact it is inconvenient story for the obama campaign and that president obama continually said things that don't square with reality, if you pay attention to that that is bad for obama. you know, this is, the way a lot of the mainstream media responded to this, they responded if this was some sort of unfair october surprise by the romney campaign when in reality this was news. this was real news and the president and his subordinates, including the bam door to the u.n. and his press spokesman have been saying
poll shows a dead heat. and 49% of the independents go for president obama and joe biden, 47% go for governor romney and paul ryan. moderate voters who tend to live in the suburbs, many of them independents, 60% for the president to 38% for governor romney. if you're looking at this poll and thinking what is governor romney need to improve on in the final days? he probably needs to boost his numbers with independents if he wants to get over the top. i can tell you in talking and e-mailing with both campaigns today, wolf, they agree with our numbers. they would have it more of an exact tie as oppose today a statistical tie. that's why the candidates are back here so often. they view colorado as a dead heat and both need the nine electoral votes here. if you look at the path to 270, colorado would help both candidates greatly get to the finish line. >> as close as it appears to be, could be a long night counting the votes in colorado. john, thanks very much. a number of other swing state polls from other news organizations also show a very, very tight race. our chief political anal
